You are here

Navigate, collect data, take pictures, in the field, and integrate it in your GIS dashboard. 
 
GeoAgro’s GIS tools are compatible with widely used Apps, for navigating and collecting data from the field.
Using a smartphone or tablet with GPS, you can navigate in the field, viewing your position in the field, collecting georeferenced data with customized forms, as well as including pictures.
Then, synchronizing the information with Farm 360, you can view the collected data/pictures on the map, and output reports with all the information.
 

Before going out to the field, you can dowload from Farm 360 your farm reference maps, to locate yourself within the fields. The most commonly used services include:

  • Vegetation Indexes: Indicate areas with higher or lower biomass, serving as a reference to scout the field and locate the affected areas.
     
  • Productivity Maps: going to the field and visiting different zones and transition areas is an effective method to recognize the zones
     
How can you  see these maps on a Smartphone to navigate in the field?
Any map available in Farm 360 can be exported in .kml format and downloaded in mobiles devices.
Then you can use any App to navigate in the field, GeoAgro recommends Google Earth or Locus Map.

Maps are visualized with their color symbology, allowing the user to locate his/her position within the field

ODK collector is one of the most widely used App to collect data in the field. It works on Android mobiles devices, allowing to:

  • Register information associated to a geographic location in the field, working in offline mode.
  • Use multiple preefined forms, according to the type of event surveyed (such as monitoring pests/diseases, soil sampling, evaluating crop status, plant counts, and other applications)
  • Replace cumbersome paper forms by electronic forms that enable quicker data entry, and taking pictures.

Once the visit is finalized, forms are synchronized with Farm360, and a new layer is created with points and associated date.

After synchronizing your ODK forms with Farm 360, the data collected in the field is shown as a GIS web layer, with associated data and pictures. 

By using these integrated tools, field visits can be more useful and valuable. All registered data can be shared and evaluated by the work group, by easily accessing maps, or through reports with pictures distributed among interested parties
